Subject: RE: 2008 R2 Young Folk Award - What Happened
"Megan and Joe love playing music from lots of genres but there real passion is in folk. They hope that people will give them a chance."
Their real passion was obvious and I'm sure it helped them get their win last Friday. I hope that people will give them a chance too, and also remember when posting knee-jerk knocking on here that just possibly these young people may be reading what you say. Don't sour their win for them before you've even given them a fair chance. Suggestions by people who weren't even there that they were a contrived entry are mean spirited and unjustified.
Megan and Joe, if you are reading (or GUEST above, who obviously know them, please pass this on) - congratulations, well done, and some of us will look forward to hearing more of what you can do at next year's festivals. Thank you.
